The weight of a ton (2000 pounds) can vary depending on the type and diameter of the rebar. For example, for #3 rebar, there are approximately 313 pieces per ton. For #4 rebar, there are about 173 pieces per ton. The quantity per ton decreases as the rebar diameter increases

Rebar is short form of reinforcing bar, it is steel bar or Steel wire provided as tension bar, used in reinforced concrete structure like column, beam and slab of house construction and it also used in reinforced masonry structure. It is used to increase the tensile strength of concrete structure.

Reinforcing bar/rebar surface is often deformed with ribs to promote a better bonding with concrete material and reduce the risk of slippage. The most common Reinforcing bar/rebar is carbon steel of hot rolled round bar with the deformation patterns, the Steel rebar may be also coated with epoxy resin material, design to resist effect of corrosion mostly in saltwater environment.

As we know that different countries in the world have their own gradation, specification of Steel and record of measurement for reinforcing bar. First remember that rebar is measured differentially in United States and Europe. while the United states, it uses the Imperial measurement system. Europe and most of rest of world uses the metric system.

In this article we briefly explain how many number 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 rebar are in a ton, how many 3 rebar in a ton and how many pieces of rebar makes a ton. This will help to viewers in better understanding and it is easy to choose the most suitable rebar you wanted according to requirement.

**How many number 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 rebar are in a ton**

In United State, based on Imperial measurement system, size of rebar is 1/8 of inch, such that number 3 rebar (#3) size = 3×1/8= 3/8 inch, which is equal to 10mm in metric system.

There is different length of rebar sold and purchase like 20 ft, 30 ft, 40 ft and 60 ft long, and we know weight of 1 ton of reinforcement bar is equal to 2000 pounds.
